Elastic modulus

The complex modulus (elastic component), storage modulus, or G’, is the “real” part of the samples the overall complex modulus. This elastic component indicates the solid like, or in phase, response of the sample being measurement.

It is automatically calculated in the rSpace software from, G’ = G*.cos(delta), where G* = complex modulus and delta = phase angle.

The elastic modulus is commonly compared to the viscous modulus which is measured simultaneously for the same sample loaded.
